This is a developer grudge centric response.

There are millions of trained photoshop users out there. Most modern software 
seperates the view or (GUI) from the Model and the controller. This means 
that developing alternative skins (gui's) becomes s straightforward process. 
Maybe this discussion could be turned into examining the question -- How easy 
would it be to focus on facilitating the development of alternative skins 
(gui's) for gimp?

A gui that emulates photoshop is really needed .

Really gimpshop is part of gimp.. the version of gimpshop running on my system 
depends upon the latest version of gimp.
